Artist’s Alley- Knoxville, TN

This past week I found myself in Knoxville, TN for work.  Knoxville reminds me of a lot of a Midwest city like Louisville, Indianapolis or Cincinnati. Nothing too memorable on the surface, but definitely not short of charm if you decide to go even a little bit below the surface.

While most of what I experienced of Knoxville was your typical fare of hipster bars and boutique shops, I did happen across one gem I didn’t expect to find in a town in Eastern Tennessee.

I was taking a stroll around the Market Square when I turned a corner and noticed a side alleyway with tons of amazing graffiti, or perhaps a more appropriate term would be urban art.  I did some quick googling and found out the alley is called Armstrong/Strong Alley, and you can find tons more photos of the great art on display here.

I’m sort of bummed I didn’t have my DSLR on hand, or I’d have photographed the entire alleyway!

These photos were shot with my handy Moto X!
